Shark Bites

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He put in 2 limited practices last week before missing Monday night's game against the Eagles. His status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins is up in the air.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) was back on the practice field on Wednesday. ESPN's Jordan Raanan notes that the rookie was working with the 2nd-team offense, though -- an indication that the Giants are still planning to start QB Eli Manning vs. Miami this weekend. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Giants QB Daniel Jones' high-ankle sprain is expected to cost him 2-4 weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie will miss tonight's game against the Eagles and Week 15 against the Dolphins. We'll see if he makes it back for the final 2 games vs. the Redskins and Eagles. If QB Eli Manning shows reasonably well tonight, he could be a deeper-league option in that Miami matchup.

The Giants have placed S Jabrill Peppers (back) on IR, ending his season. That likely locks in Julian Love as the starter in Peppers’ place the rest of the way. He played nearly every snap in the first game following Peppers’ injury

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) put in a full week of practice and will play against the Eagles on Monday night. He's averaged 8.1 targets, 5.1 catches and 64 yards per game this season -- although that's all come with QB Daniel Jones.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (ankle) is out for Monday night's game against the Eagles. He didn't practice all week and should be considered iffy for Week 15 vs. Miami. QB Eli Manning will be back under center on Monday but is just a lower-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) are out for Monday night's game against the Eagles. That means another game as lead TE for Kaden Smith, who's totaled 14 targets, 11 catches, 87 yards and a score over the last 2 weeks.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) put in a limited practice on Thursday. It's his 1st practice of any kind since going down back in Week 9. Engram expects to play against the Eagles on Monday night, but we'd feel better about getting him back in fantasy lineups if he gets in a full practice on Friday and/or Saturday.

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) put in a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to return for Monday night's game against the Eagles. Tate has averaged 8.1 targets, 5.1 catches and 64 yards per game this season -- although that's all come with QB Daniel Jones.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) told reporters that he expects to return for Monday night's game against the Eagles. We'll track his practice participation over the next few days. The foot issue will add some risk to Engram's Week 14 fantasy outlook, but note that he racked up 22 targets, 17 catches and 164 yards in 2 games with QB Eli Manning to open the season.

Giants HC Pat Shurmur announced on Wednesday that QB Daniel Jones has a "mild" high-ankle sprain and that QB Eli Manning will "very likely" start Monday night's game against the Eagles. Manning posted 306-1-0 and 250-1-2 passing lines over the first 2 weeks of the season before getting benched for the rookie. He's just a low-end QB2 against an improved Philly pass defense. We'll see who's under center for the G-Men in a plus Week 15 matchup vs. the Dolphins.

The forecast for today's Packers-Giants game calls for a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain. Winds are expected to come in at 10-20 mph. Aaron Rodgers and Co. are used to this type of weather. But Daniel Jones told ESPN's Jordan Raanan that he's never played in snow. Keep that in mind when making lineup decisions.

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He leaves behind 8.1 targets per game. With TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) also out, there's a lot of volume to go around for WR Sterling Shepard, WR, Darius Slayton, RB Saquon Barkley and TE Kaden Smith.

Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) are out for Sunday's game against the Packers. That again leaves Kaden Smith as New York's lead TE. In that role last week, he ran a pass route on 100% of QB Daniel Jones' drop backs, garnered a 17% target share and posted a 5-17-1 line. Smith is a viable Week 13 spot starter if you're hurting at TE.

Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) remained sidelined on Wednesday. With both guys out last week, TE Kaden Smith ran a pass route on 100% of QB Daniel Jones' drop backs and garnered a 17% target share. He'll be a deep-league flier for Week 13 if Engram and Ellison are out again.

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. That's not a good start in his quest to get cleared in time for this weekend's game against the Packers. Fantasy owners should be making other plans at this point.

The Giants announced Monday that S Jabrill Peppers has a transverse process fracture. That likely means he'll miss at least Sunday's game against the Packers. This is the same injury that has cost Lions QB Matthew Stafford the past 3 games. But it's also an injury that cost Raiders QB Derek Carr just 1 game back in 2017. We'll see about the severity of Peppers' injury. You'll at least need a Week 13 replacement.

The Giants announced Monday that WR Golden Tate is in the concussion protocol. He sustained the head injury on his 4th-quarter TD in yesterday's loss to the Bears. We'll track Tate's progress through the protocol, but fantasy owners should plan on being without him in Week 13 for now.

Giants S Jabrill Peppers left Sunday's loss to the Bears early with a hip injury. He'll have an MRI Monday to determine the severity, according to ESPN.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) isn't listed on the final Week 12 injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Bears. Consider Shepard a WR3 in what's a tough spot for the Giants offense.
